Happy Friday everyone!
So yesterday was date night for Kyle and myself. Thursdays he comes over to my house and I make dinner.
We rushed through dinner so we could make the 7:30 screening of Captain Phillips. We got there at around 7:15 PM, but I think we cut it too close and we should have left earlier.
Now, remember, this is my second time going to see this movie. The first time didn’t go so well. I figured I would be fine this time around because we sat closer to the back of the theatre.
I was wrong.
I started to feel a little sick at around the same time as last time. I even tried not looking at the screen for the first 30 minutes because I had already seen that part.
I made it about 45 minutes longer than the last time we went to this movie, and then Kyle noticed that I wasn’t feel so great (I was trying really hard to act normal).
He whispered, “Are you feeling okay?” I shook my head, yes. He could tell I was lying and got up and left, instead of waiting for me to try to convince him to stay (he knows me too well).
I felt horrible for 2 reasons: 1- I was seasick. 2- This was the second freaking time I’ve made Kyle leave this movie!
I started crying (just tearing up, not a 3-year old meltdown) in the lobby because I felt so bad.
We got our movie vouchers and left so Kyle could take care of me at home.
Moral of the story: You can’t take Amy to movies, where the majority of the film takes place at sea. Or you will have to leave…twice.
From what I’ve seen so far, I think the movie is really good! I think the issue is the way it is shot (kind of jerky), which causes my motion sickness.
Anyways, I am lame and still haven’t seen the full film.
To end on a happier note, my mom sent me a postcard from Switzerland (She was there for work, and then stayed longer to go to Florence with my aunt). Jealous.
Have you ever had to leave the movie theatre mid-movie? Yes…more times than I would like to admit.
